This month we focus on our great selection of contract sofas including contract corner sofas, high back contract sofas and outdoor contract sofas. View our selection of new sofas and hospitality furniture picks below or take a look at the full range of contract sofas here.  As usual we've included the showroom sample showreel at the bottom to let you know what's new to our Hammersmith haunt in the Halloween month of October. 

Tips for specifying contract sofas

When choosing a contract sofa there are a few things specific to soft seating to look out for. In particular seat heights can be less easy to measure with soft seats – harder cushions appear to mean higher seats. In the same vein, soft cushions are more difficult to get out of as they sink lower, so seat softness is definitely one to check before ordering.

CMHR (Combustion Modified High Resilient) foam is required for UK hospitality furniture but it is not essential in all other European countries. There is a limited choice of densities of this foam.

You should also be aware that sofa widths include the width of arms - so ensure you leave a big enough seat for your intended use.

If your sofa feet are integral with their frame, they won’t twist. but care should be taken with screw-on square legs and feet, as they’ll gradually loosen over time. For more tips on specifying contract sofas & soft seating click here.
